Easy drive from either airport and convenient home base for all your Hawaii Island activities. See the sun rise where morning sky meets the expanse of the azure sea or watch the clouds turn pink as it settles behind the mountains for the evening. Property is totally off-grid. Electricity provided by solar photovoltaic arrays with genset backup.

Hike around the property, take a dip in the pool. Relax in the spa. No matter how you spend your vacation, you'll come away with lifelong memories to share with your family and friends

Makana Mai Ka Lani suites are not ideal for families with children due to proximity of the pool!

RUSTIC COTTAGE: Conveniently located about 400 ft up the drive from the main house. (See listing VRBO #384507) Perched near upper middle of 21 pastoral acres on the slope of Mauna Kea with breathtaking 180 degree view of the blue Pacific and Hamakua Coast. Designed to be comfortable for the solitary traveler or couple; young or not so young.

Full private bath with spacious, oversized shower convenience, comfort height commode, and ample Handicap bars. Cottage has own TV with DISH Network access. Broadband WiFI access for your internet needs. Kitchenette has own stove, fridge, microwave, dishes and utensils plus convenient shared access to gas grill just outside the door. Whether you enjoy just a few nights or an extended stay, you’ll enjoy your Hawaiian experience. Excellent location for that extended stay to rejuvenate, create, or play tourist.

Need to know:

We are located in a rural, agricultural area, please be aware what that may offer. Adjoining properties host grazing cattle. Feral pigs are abundant and can be vocal. Chickens, roosters, ducks, geese, and others contribute to the polyphony.

Pets: Guests are requested to not bring pets with them, (we respectfully ask you coordinate PRIOR to booking if you desire to bring a pet/service animal) but we are owned by THREE awesome boxers. While they have freedom to roam, we prefer they not be invited into guest quarters. Most likely, they’ll look for you in the morning. Because of them, we ask you to double check that the gates are closed when entering or exiting the property.

Smoking: We are serious about being a non smoking property. That starts at the county road as you turn onto our drive. Of course, most rental cars are also non smoking so that’s a help. We would sincerely ask that if this presents a problem that you find a place you can more fully enjoy. Violators will be asked to leave - immediately, and billed accordingly if room needs additional cleaning.

Weather: Big Island Hawaii boasts 11 of the 13 climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems and weather characteristics. Elevation, pressure variations, rainfall, wind and topography combine to create distinctive microclimates within those climate zones. Climates you may encounter include the humid tropical zones, from sea level to 450 feet, the arid and semi-arid zones, the temperate zones, and the Alpine zones, chilly areas above 10,500 feet.This is not the Hawaii of Waikiki postcards. Rain is what keeps us lush and green. Our normal year rainfall is 120-140 inches. While mostly at night, this changes during the year. Our local temps range from a low of 59 to a high of 80. We have our own Davis weather station on site and accessible via web or iphone app for current conditions. For anyone interested in historical data regarding temperature, rainfall etc, please visit Weather Underground Link station KHININOL2

About David

We come from a military background and large families. We have been blessed to travel and enjoy the world. David was stationed in Hawaii in 70's-80's. Sophie first visited in 1989. David always wanted to return to Hawaii but as happens, life kinda got in the way until a significant life event in the late 90's, then returning to Hawaii became our goal. For those that know, Hawaii lives in your heart. We just didn't move here, we came home.

David purchased this studio in 2003

Why David chose Ninole

This is the home in our hearts. Coming from large families and from the East Coast, you know you want family and friends to be able to come and visit - and you want that visit to be special. So we custom designed and built this house accordingly. Crashing on the sofa or maybe the little room down the hall, doesn't cry out 'Vacation in Paradise', so we built to give our guests that experience. That design is the 4 box concept. One box is our Master Suite (located at one end of the house), one box the living room, kitchen & dining (located in the middle), one box the garage, and one box the Guest Suites (located at the other end of house). Those guest rooms should offer a vacation experience, completely self contained. Close enough to be part of the family, yet private enough to getaway, while enjoying the amenities of a private resort. Some say our house is like a private resort. Living here does feel like living at a private resort. We love it!

What makes this studio unique

A 'Vacation in Paradise' for our friends and family, but reality said those visits would be few and spaced out, so why not think to expand our family (ohana). So with just a bit more thought we designed two suites that are completely self contained. Be an active part of the family, lounge by the pool, talk story, walk the property, be as inclusive as comfortable. OR, be as private and to yourself as you wish. Come and go by the rear entrance and all we'll see is your car coming or going. YOUR choice.

Peaceful relaxation poolside while taking in gorgeous view of the Pacific. Watch the whales when in season.

Welcome to paradise.

Great Place and Aloha Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

When you book a vacation rental, there are always concerns and issues that could arise.

This rental and the presence of the owners provided a great venue for our R&R needs plus peace of mind knowing someone was nearby in case we needed anything was comforting. Ninole is wonderful and David and Sophie are great hosts...providing enough Aloha spirit to make you feel welcome but giving you enough privacy and flexibility to explore the premises and make you feel at home. The location is great, allowing exploration North or South, whatever suits you. The poolside ocean view is drop dead gorgeous...I highly recommend this rental. Thank you David, Sophie, Pele and his canine crew!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we felt immediately the hospitality that other reviewers have described. David and Sophie are outstanding hosts! It felt like we were visiting with friends! The view was spectacular, the accommodation was spacious and clean. We truly enjoy our time there. A great place to relax, put your feet up and find new friends!! The description of the property and the other reviews all accurately describe the place - it's a great oasis! We happened to be there during Christmas 2014 and New Years 2015, and David and Sophie were so very kind to include us in their holiday get togethers! We truly appreciated their hospitality. And of course the 3 fur kids were superb as well!

We would certainly stay here again, the location is great to visit Big Island, and the hosts are superb! Thank you for sharing this your place of paradise !

What an incredible 12 day visit with two of the best hosts one could ever experience. It truly felt like home being with them and sharing time together. The accommodations were wonderful - all the creature comforts included. Our view would be hard to beat anywhere - pool, and Pacific and blue sky. Awesome and winning combo. Not only was it a delight to spend time with the owners, but our hearts were captured by their absolutely wonderful three boxers and how they would come to greet us daily. This is a place to relax, get away from it all, enjoy the views and being off the beaten path of the hustle and bustle of staying in a city hotel. We loved it, will recommend it and hope to be back in the future.

Owner's Response: We totally enjoyed your visit as well and look forward to your return. Of course, the dogs have looked for you and are disappointed when they don't find the two of you. So glad you found our little bit of paradise.

Queen Suite

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very late and our host & hostess just couldn't be nicer and more welcoming even at that late hour. The view of the Pacific is SPECTACULAR, just open your front door! Also a lovely and large pool is just a few steps away. The Queen Suite is large, airy, bright and comfortable. A fully tiled bath and an efficient kitchenette makes en suite living a breeze. The Owners are about as friendly and as accommodating as you favorite relatives, maybe more so! They have a lovely large room in the main house where they play board games and chat with guests late into the night. Whether you are looking for a base from which to visit the sights near Hilo or are looking for a quiet place to rest, this is the ONE!
